Using quality products in your ducted evaporative air conditioning will make sense in the long run. So as an example, I have customers come in the factory looking for replacement air conditioning vents. In some cases the first time they took them down to clean the vent it fell apart. There are many different levels of quality on the market so choose carefully.
Get the right advice and use the correct products
Too often I go to peoples homes to inspect there air conditioning systems. Were they have complained about no air flow or low air flow. So there are Many different causes depending on the system they have installed. The common problem is poor design and incorrect duct sizing. It doesn’t matter whether it is reverse cycle air conditioning or Ducted evaporative cooling. I am a firm believer you get what you pay for. So when choosing were to buy your air conditioning systems make sure they know the information about all the products involved.
I would recommending using Australian made Products
With evaporative air conditioning I would recommend using Australian made evaporative coolers. Why you might ask for the following 3 simple reasons.
- Better quality with proven designs
- Replacements part are easily available
- solid warranty system should you need it
So for the last 35 years, I have worked in the Perth air conditioning industry and have used 5 of the Australian made brands. Some brands had better features than others. But the one thing they all had in common was reliability and performance. I am talking about brands like Coolbreeze, Ezycool, Coolair, Braemar and Celair.
Installing quality system and components
Evaporative cooling systems are easy to install. If you are a well skilled handy many and not afraid of a bit of hard work. I would recommend to give it a go. So the secret is to pick the right time of year to install your system. Therefore I would not recommend the middle of summer. The cooler months would make the job a lot easier and using the right products.
